Peace and Justice: NDPC Visits Montgomery April 4, 2020

Entrance to the Legacy MuseumThe Peace and Justice committee invites you to visit the Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration and The National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama.

At the Legacy Museum you’ll bear witness to the evolution of the slave trade through Jim Crow to today’s mass incarceration.

Markers at the National MemorialAt the National Memorial, you’ll learn about the thousands of people lynched in towns and counties across America. The memorial is “conceived with the hope of creating a sober, meaningful site where people can gather and reflect on America’s history of racial inequality.”

The experience will illuminate, educate, and we hope move you to committed action. This visit is serves as a prelude to our adult education class “Violence, Nonviolence, Peacemaking,” beginning the next day, on April 5, Palm Sunday.
